Center for Contemporary Opera
Recorded at the premiere performance by the Center for Contemporary Opera in March, 2011, The Secret Agent, with libretto by J D McClatchy based on Joseph Conrad’s story, has since been presented at the Armel Opera Festival in Hungary and the Opéra Théatre d’Avignon in France.
Though the original story was written in 1907, it remains chillingly relevant today in our terror-haunted world. OnStage noted that “… in the tradition of “Makropulos Affair,” “From the House of the Dead,” “Wozzeck” and “Pelléas et Mélisande”— its music is urgent, agitated and intense, with occasional lyrical interludes”.
This is composer Michael Dellaira’s third opera and his first collaboration with the noted librettist J D McClatchy.
